What to expect

This tour is designed to give you an insider's view of the area's tumultuous past, while at the same time, showing you its current beauty. Westerplatte was for centuries a military base for many different armies, most people associate it with a date: the 1st of September 1939. Even though other Polish cities were attacked a few minutes earlier than Westerplatte, this place is the symbol for the beginning of the Second World War.

Here 200 Polish soldiers heroically fought the Nazis which outnumbered them by 8 times. Nowadays in Westerplatte, you can view the remaining Guardhouse No.1 and the remains of a barracks. The whole area is quite small so you will walk through it.

You will see a small military cemetery and a huge Monument to the defenders of the Polish Coast. A large monument pays tribute to those Polish defenders and marks the spot where the entire world was plunged into war just 60 years ago.
